 7TH BPS RETIREES OF SBI.
Ladies and gentlemen,

By going through the leading english dailies of the last couple of days, regarding apportioning 3% of the net profit to serving personnel as incentive, the real colour of Chairman has come to light.

2. Indian politicians like Indira Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi,
Mayawati,Jayalalithaa, Vasundhara Raje Scindia,Mamta Banerjee are all alike. The success behind a lady is 'A HENPECKED HUSBAND'. Our Chairman is also no different.
She has made a cheap fool of our Federation Leades and the general members.

3. 'NA STREE SWATANTRYAM ARHATEE'.

WITH SENTIMENTS LIKE ALL 7TH BPS RETIREES.

 Denial of computing pension at @ 50 % of last basic pay drawn employees opted for s.v.r.s in 2001
The fact remains that the legal officers of our Bank have been misguiding the Chairman and are earning handsome salary and get a chance to inflate the bills of the advocate recommended and engage by such Law Officers.
2. If at all the Chairman is promising to be sympathetic towards the plight of employees in particular - the subordinate, awards staff and Grade -II officer who had accepted the proposal of the bank for special voluntary retirement scheme then the Chairman ( being the ex-officio trustee of pension funds) being fairly educated and having preliminarily knowledge of law then in that case the Chairman can suo motto direct the Law Officers of the bank to draft out amendments in the recently gazetted S.B I. Pension Regulation of 2013 by the virtue of the savings clause incorporated in such gazetted regulations without the need to consult either the G.o.I or the R.B.I. Any law student would know the significance of incorporation of a saving clause in legal enactments which provide a gateway for incorporating amendments when needed to be done. The law officers of the bank are hand in gloves with the bank advocates and do not suggest to the Chairman the most viable way to resolve the issue that seems has gone haywire due to false conceptualization of the Law Officers believing that all pensioners are not equal. I my opinion all those who have joined the bank service and are admitted to the pension funds after retirement they all are deemed pensioners and that discrimination meted out to Officer above Grade I by differentiating of payment of pension rule of 50 % of last drawn basic salary to all equally. This will diminish the inequality between the pensioners. This will also then stop the senior staff officers to get more money as by way of incentives during their employment. Bonus system was closed down but is now being reintroduced for senior staff officers hence this is what is now perplexing issue.

It appears that there is no discipline in our judicial system. I am afraid that this case will not be decided with in this 21st century. Since more than 50% aggrieved pensioners have left this world and remaining have crossed their age of 70 and waiting for the call of the God.

The above case is being postponed for the last 6th July 2015 without hearing and without any valid reason. When the WP 184 was transferred to Delhi High Court on27-2-2013 for some technical reasons it was specifically mentioned in the transfer order of Supreme Court as under:-

The Honorable Supreme Court in their order dated 27-2-2013 specifically mentioned that the pleadings are complete and the matter is pending before this court for the last one and a half years we deem it proper to transfer the petition papers to Delhi High Court and request the learned Chief Justice to assign the writ petition before a bench of his choice for early disposal of the matter at any rate within the outer limit of six months from the date of receipt of records. It is surprising that when we people ignore/disobey the order of court it is treated contempt of court but if Delhi High Court is not adhering to the request/instructions of apex Court it is no contempt. It is clear that the might is always right.

Resuming my news item of cold storage whichis neith the property of GOI or Bank except in cases where assets auctioned/taken over by strssed assets management co. All the recommendations need not go to cold storage certainly matters like 3% bonus/stock options will be priortised over others already in the waiting list of approvals to goi. All of us knows the reasons and the interested persons are from top management who can make publicity, lobbying etc. You and I mean 5,6,7th BS retirees are from neglector and we have no god father to move the matter forward. Mr.Upadhyayaji a former GM and 7th BS retiree sent an email to Chairman of the Bank pointing out various examples that the of revised pension could have been decided by him under his powers instead of recommending to goi. I salute and supported in my mail to him. If the things will not move fast, there will be near 'O' Retirees of 5,6 and 7th BS by implementation of 12th Bipartite Settlement and the revised pension will also go to cold storage along with couch potatoes or be written off from the history. I also pay my respectful homages to our late leaders like R.N.Godbple, E.K.Takur and Charles Couto w ho did a lot for the cause of staff. Also, Shri L.V.Subramanian, S.Nagarajan

Dear Sir,

It is known to all that in India nothing happens without political support.Take the case our Bangalore / Kerala circles formation.Any kind of agitation / strike by the employees / officers did not yield result.Only when S/Shri Janardhana Poojari then Banking Minister for Bangalore circle and O Rajagopal in respect of Kerala circle could get things done at last.

So as mentioned by my esteemed colleague elsewhere in this site it will be worthwhile that our leaders in Chennai and Mumbai approach respective Chief Ministers / other political leaders and influence the Central Govt to solve the stalemate issues.

Please offer valuable comments / opinions on my suggestion.

It is an open question to all my friends who are frequently active in this site. I PROPOSE TO SEND A MAIL FROM MY E-MAIL ID (rmi_1948yahoo.co.in) REQUESTING THE CHAIRMAN, STATE BANK OF INDIA TO GIVE A PRESS STATEMENT REGARDING HER RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA ON THE CAPTIONED SUBJECT JUST LIKE THE ONE SHE GAVE IN TODAY'S LEADING DAILIES REGARDING 3% OF NET PROFIT TO SERVING EMPLOYEES OF SBI.

 FEDERATION LEADERS MEETING WITH CHAIRMAN
Dear Friends,

I am in full agreement with the posts made by our members Sarvashri Gopalakrishnan, Srinivasan and Moni.

The promise given to us still remains on paper. All leading English dailies carry the Chairman's statement to earmark 3% of the Net Profit (N.P. is Rs.13,750/- crores and 3% comes to nearly Rs.510/- crores) for payment of incentives to working personnel. Despite all our requests and prayers, she chose not to mention anything about the plight of the pensioners especially those retired prior to 8th BPS.

2. We must explore the feasibility of contacting some leading politicians to get approval from the Prime Minister for our long pending demands like anomalies of 7th BPS retirees, 100 D.A. nutralization to all pre- 1.11.2002 retirees w.e.f. 1.11.2002, up-dating of pension with every BPS, Extra pension when one retiree reaches the age of 80, 90 and 100. I do not think there is any point in waiting for the assurance given by our Chairman.

3. Let us hope for the best. The only hope is on the HIGH COURT OF DELHI.

4. To SBI Chairman "BRUTUS, YOU TOO".

Yours friendly,

One more recommendation added n the pending list of approval from GOI regarding 3% bonus from profit for middle and top management. I remember during my 4 decades of service, the top bosses some times when they don't want to take decisions, they simply return the Folders with remarks 'pl.refer/pl.speak and such folders ultimately go to final destination 'cold storage' like couch potatoes. While this is a welcome step. they may even get 4/5 Saturdays holidays, 25/30% hike in salary even pay without work, 25/30% bonus etc., during ensuing 11th/12th BS by which time the remaining 50% of retirees of 5/6/7th BS may not even know what is happening or outcome as average life expectancy in India is of 62/63. Ofcourse their souls or spouses if they alive will go pillar to post to find out the left over. More in my next nes item. Mani

Well said Shri M Gopalakrishna Iyer- In today's Hindu(18/07/2015) there was a news item that the Chairman of the Bank plans to offer 3% profit to Staff asincentive. It is good but let them first arrage to pay the legitimate pension dues to 5th, 6th and 7th BPs Retirirees of the Bank, who are patiently waiting for more than 15 years and the irony is that more than 15000 pensioners of that Batch have already left this world!Early action by the Chairman of the Bank in this regard is the need ofthe hour.

Dear Friends,

Please go through "Samvad Magazine", the official monthly publication of SBI Pensioners Association, Mumbai Circle. Page No.21 shows copy of a letter dated 9th July 2015 written by our Federation (PENFED) to all affiliates. Except hollow promises like "I will look into it; I will follow it up" no tangible achievements could be seen there. Another example of double game. If our Chairman is sincere to the purpose, just like in the days of stalwarts like the late R.K. Talwar, P.C.D. Nambiar etc., she can write a DO letter to the Hon'ble Finance Minister and meet him and get our problems solved within a short time. Who will bell the cat!.

Yours sincerely,

 7TH BPS RETIREES
Dear Friends, Greetings and good wishes. The progress in the Writ filed by the Federation is dragging on at the DHC. “There are no material changes in our revised prayers & amended W P have been filed.”[www. sbipensionerspune.org] It has been recorded by DHC in their judgment in W.P. (C) 2353/2014 & CM No.17063/2014 that the Fed and the petitioner have challenged the the vires of Rule 23 (2) of the Pension Rules framed by the SBI. The grievance of the 7th bipartite retirees is with regard to pay on the basis of which the pension is to be calculated. [W.P.No.1317 of 2009 disposed - Calcutta H C]. Central Office Circular No: CDO/PM/16/CIR/34 dated 31st October 2000 states that “The pension of the employees retired after 1.3.1999 and retire hereafter shall be calculated on the revised pension rules but with reference to pre revised pay and allowances.” These instructions have been continued even after incorporating the provisions of 7th Bipartite Settlements in the SBI Officers Service Rules by the Central Board of the Bank in its meeting dated 28.11.2001. The average substantive salary drawn during the last twelve months of pensionable service forms the basis for the calculation of pension. The rule relating to the calculation of pension nowhere ties down the substantive salary to any wage revision. The pensioners of the 7th BPS alone have been selectively discriminated in deciding the basis on which pension is to be calculated. Neither the amendment to the SBI Officers Service Rules nor the orders of CHC and DHC have made the Trustees to revise the pension on the basis of 7th BPS salary. I request the Administrator and/or other Readers to inform if any prayer has been made in the Fed Writ to deter the Trustees of pension fund from denying the pension on the average of salary drawn during the last twelve months of pensionable service to the one and only select group of 7th BPS pensioners. With regards vmadhavan67@yahoo.in

Comment: Dear Mr Arora,

As far as we know, the earlier Bench (which has since been dissolved), had ordered that our case be listed among the first 5 items in the daily list, till it could be taken up for final hearing and disposal. When the court resumed after Summer vacation, a new bench took up our case, but it was not getting listed in the first 5 items. Our Federation's counsel approached the Registrar and this anomaly was removed. Now our matter will continue to get listed, till it is heard finally and disposed of. This is our interpretation of the situation.

 PENSION IS NOT A BOUNTY - 7TH BPS PENSIONERS
Dear Readers Greetings and good wishes to one and all. Shri RP Gupta wrote on 12-07-2015 highlighting that “the up-gradation of pension is a right and not a booty"[ bounty]. The concept dates back to the judgment in Deokinandan Prasad v. State of Bihar (1971 SCR 634)It has been reiterated by the Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court in the suit D.S. Nakara v. Union of India [(1983) 1 SCC 305]. I reproduce here a citation which will have a direct impact & applicability to the woes 7th BP Pensioners from the Supreme Court observations in D.S. Nakara v. Union of India [(1983) 1 SCC 305]. It reads ““20. The antiquated notion of pension being a bounty, a gratuitous payment depending upon the sweet will or grace of the employer not claimable as a right and, therefore, no right to pension can be enforced through court has been swept under the carpet by the decision of the Constitutional Bench in Deokinandan Prasad v. State of Bihar wherein this court authoritatively ruled that pension is a right and the payment of it does not depend upon the discretion of the Government but is governed by the rules and a government servant coming within rules is entitled to claim pension.” The rulings in Deokinandan Prasad & D.S. Nakara are quoted in the Supreme Court while disposing, on 26 02 2015, the CIVIL APPEAL NO.2463 OF 2015 [Arising out of S.L.P. (Civil) No. 3686 OF 2007]. This suit pertains to SBIVRS pensioners Sarvashree (i) Radhey Shyam Pandey (ii)Mihir Kumar Nandi (iii) M.P. Hallan and (iv) R.P. Nigam.

Dear Friends,

The post of Shri V.S.Srinivasan made on the 11th July is prompting me to share somr of my thoughts with my similarly placed friends.

2. On the one hand we hear from this site that the Bank has recommended for immediate rectification of anomalies and revision of pension to the captioned category of our pensioners. On the other hand we hear that the Bank has gone on appeal to Supreme Court of India/filed a revision petition in the High Court of Delhi against the judgement of Jaipuriar case.

2. When our representatives met our Chairman on 7th June, she is reported to have told that "I WILL LOOK INTO THE MATTER"; I WILL CLOSELY FOLLOW UP THE MATTER". But nothing has happened as yet.

3. The employees and officers of Government
of India and Reserve Bank of India are all enjoying the benefits of revision of pension with every bipartite settlements/pay commission implementation and 100% nutralisation of dearness relief on pension with effect from 1.11.2002. When pensioners of Central Government, Defence, Railway and State Government are getting such benefits, why and under what precedence or authority are GOI and RBI denying the same only to SBI pensioners?

4. It is now high time that our Federation approaches the Supreme Court of India with a prayer to clip the wings of RBI and GOI from intervening or interfering or putting spokes on our pension matters by allowing our Corporate Centre a free hand in the matter. Once our prayers are approved by the Supreme Court, we can get rid of Government of India and Reserve Bank of India and the bureaucrats once for all. Contributions to SBI Pension Funds are made only by State Bank of India. Government of India or Reserve Bank of India have not contributed even a single paisa to SBI pension fund.

5. I request all my aggrieved and similarly placed friends to make a loud thinking and approach their circle association leaders

Yours sincerely,

M. Gopalakrishna Iyer.

 Federation meeting with Chairman and Shri Jaipuriars case at Delhi High Court
Approps to the brief note appeared in the current news column in your web site as under quote--
“WE HAVE RECEIVED A BRIEF MESSAGE FROM OUR FEDERATION REPRESENTATIVES STATING THAT "THE MEETING WITH THE CHAIRMAN HAS BEEN CORDIAL. THE CHAIRMAN SAID THAT SHE IS CLOSELY MONITORING THE 7TH BIPARTITE PENSION ISSUE AND REMOVAL OF PENSION ANOMALIES. SHE ASSURED THAT WHE WOULD FOLLOW UP CLOSELY." FURTHER DETAILS ARE AWAITED”.
Further the Bank has sent a recommendation to Finance Department, Government of India vide their letter No.CDO/PM/SM/16/SPL/20 dated 27th April recommending for their approval of revision of pension for 5th,6th and 7th BPs retirees of the Bank.
So far as per above two paragraphs the position is very much in favour of the unfortunate 5th, 6th and 7th BPS pensioners of the Bank.
At the same time we also understand that the Bank has filed an appeal against Shri Jaipuriar's case in the Supreme Court..

If the Bank has really gone on appeal in the case of Delhi High Court verdict in favor of Shri Jaipuriar, and if the news is correct, I am of the view that the Pensioners’ Federation should view the matter seriously and bring it to notice of the Chairman of the Bank the contradictory views of the Bank in this regard. The Pensioners’ Federation is also duty bound to appraise the members the correct position in this regard without any further delay…
 
Comment: Dear Mr Srinivasan,

The bank had already written to the Govt, recommending the removal of anomalies for the earlier Bipartite retirees. We understand that the Chairman has assured, in the recent meeting, that she will pursue this matter further with all sincerity.
However the single case decided in Delhi High Court is not applicable to all 7th Bipartite retirees, as it was not a representative suit.

 PLIGHT OF BANK PENSIONERS.
Dear Comrades,

I append translation of a "letter to the editor" by Shri Ravi Panthakkal, Mahe in the malayalam daily "Malayala Manorama" dated 11.05.2015.

QUOTE: Retirees of Central, State and Public Sector Undertakings are getting their pension revised at regular intervals. There is also a country-wide agitation for "One Rank One Pension" scheme. But there is nobody to appreciate and sad fate of Bank Pensioners.

Pension in Banks were introduced in 1986 which has not been revised/improved in any manner whatsoever. This is really sad. Another fact is that in the 10th Bipartite Settlement deliberations, even a single representative of Bank Pensioners was not included. Although there was an assurance that pensioners issues will be solved while effecting salary revision by IBA and Bank employees/officers representatives, the settlement saw an increase of 15% for serving people only, thus ignoring Bank pensioners. The Public Sector Bank earned a net profit of Rs.1,50,000 crores last year. Yet pensioners were ignored in the Bipartite Talks.

Fate of thousands of VRS retirees are still worse and sympathetic. These senior citizens are not given even a single paisa for medical expenses. UNQUOTE.

I request our members to publish similar letters in all leading local dailies of their respective states and also in leading dailies like Times of India, Indian Express, Hindustan Times, Deccan Chronicle, Deccan Herald, The Hindu etc.

With greetings for victory,

M. Gopalakrishna Iyer.
